    Default Slow HDD transfer rates

    I have a 1TB WD Caviar Blue (SATA3) as my primary hard drive and have it connected to port SATA3_0. My DVD burner is connected to port SATA3_1, and my external hdd is simply connected via USB 2.0.

    Anyway, I did some tests and my Blue drive is getting really low transfer rates. I should be getting +20mb/s and I'm only getting 5-8mb/s. Am I missing something here? Did I connect my drive wrong or miss a setting in the BIOS? Please help.

    It would be much easier if you gave us the model of your motherboard.

    Motherboard: Asrock Z68 Extreme4

    WD Blue info (WD10EALX):
    Untitled Page
    7200 rpm, SATA3

    The only difference between this drive and a lower-end Caviar Black is about $20 less and a 3yr warranty instead of 5yr.

    Tests were done only on the WD drive within itself (PCMark, HDTune).

    Try it again. I even logged out and it still shows up fine. They might have had a temporary server issue.

    Sorry, I cannot understand what "System storage - importing pictures" mean! Does it test all (including usb) drives and show average? Can you also test with oher programs e.g "sisoft sandra" and compare results?
